Introduction and outline concerning the history of art and architecture of the Middle Ages. (Prof. Dr. A. Markschies)
Acquirement of basic knowledge of the history of art and architecture, resp. of methodical basic knowledge of historical working.
In the Spring Semester the emphasis is on the main tendencies of Western architecture since the Age of Enlightenment: classicism, romantic and historicist architecture, the reform movements of the late 19th century as well as the modern architecture in the years preceding the Great War. Special attention will be given to the impact of the era's socio-political developments - Industrial Revolution and Colonialism - on architecture. By studying exemplary architecture, significant positions and relevant building types of that period a basic knowledge of architectural history will be imparted. The history of architecture is regarded as a part of a comprehensive history, in which the architectural concepts will be discussed within their cultural, political and social correlations. (Dr. Ita Heinze-Greenberg)
The second section of the lecture provides a historical outline of medieval architecture in France. (Prof. Dr. A. Markschies)
